Watermelon Marinated Steak Kabobs

Gigi sent me this recipe and it was really good. I was excited to find it again just before the fourth!


Watermelon Marinated Steak Kabobs


1 ½ lbs. Flank steak (the thinner the better)

1 ½ c. cubed and seeded watermelon

¼ c. sugar

½ c. ketchup

¼ c. lime juice

3 minced garlic cloves

2 tsp. minced ginger root

2 tsp. salt (I use a little less)

1 tsp. chili paste (found in the oriental section)

2 tsp. soy sauce

½ c. minced green onions

2 c. cubed watermelon (for skewers)


Split the steak lengthwise and cut against the grain into ½ in. thick strips and place in a large zip-lock bag. Puree the watermelon cubes in a blender. Simmer the juice and sugar in a saucepot until reduced by half (about 1 c. syrup). Combine the syrup with ketchup, lime juice, garlic, ginger, soy sauce and green onion. Cool mixture to room temperature. Pour over steak and marinate 1 – 8 hours.


Thread meat onto skewers alternating with watermelon cubes.


Heat grill to medium high and grill each side 3 – 4 minutes. Serve with lime wedges.


Remember to soak your skewers in water for at least one hour so they don’t burn or you can use metal skewers.
